Michaela Coel’s ‘Chewing Gum’ Comes To Binge

Today, BINGE, home to the world’s best shows, announced every episode of Chewing Gum, created and written by Michaela Coel will be available to stream this week.

The show that follows religious 24-year-old, Tracey Gordon (played by Coel), takes a comedic spin on her journey of self-exploration as she realises the more, she learns about the world, the less she understands.

Helping launch Coel’s career, Chewing Gum earned her dual BAFTAs for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme and Breakthrough Talent. 

BINGE Executive Director Alison Hurbert-Burns said: “Michaela Coel is a creative force, telling stories the BINGE audience want to see. We look forward to adding Chewing Gum to our world’s best line-up of shows.

“The decision to bring Coel’s breakthrough series to BINGE comes after an overwhelming response by viewers to her recent global phenomenon, I May Destroy You, which she created and starred in.”

Hailed as the show of 2020, I May Destroy You, has ignited world-wide discussion and debate on sexual consent and the distinction between liberation and exploitation in modern society.

The 12-part series is an exploration of Coel’s own experience with sexual assault which occurred during the writing of Chewing Gum.

From October 2, Australians can stream both Seasons of Chewing Gum plus all 12 episodes of I May Destroy You on BINGE.
